Sediments can be seen by the coasts of New Zealand’s North and South Islands, partially in the Cook Strait, which separates the two.┬áIt connects the Tasman Sea on the west with the South Pacific Ocean on the east.

To the south the coast runs runs 30 km along Cloudy Bay and past the islands and entrances to the Marlborough Sounds. To the north the coast runs 40 km along Palliser Bay, crosses the entrance to Wellington harbour, past some Wellington suburbs and continues another 15 km to Makara beach.
